Center Theatre Group is now accepting submissions for the 2019 Richard E. Sherwood Award. The deadline to submit an application is June 1, 2018.
The Sherwood Award is an annual $10,000 prize that supports innovative and adventurous theatre artists and engages them in a professional relationship with Center Theatre Group. The award is presented each year at the Ovation Awards ceremony produced by LA Stage Alliance. Two additional finalists will each receive a $2,000 honorarium.
Center Theatre Group invites individual emerging artists to submit an application if they have resided in Los Angeles for at least two years and have developed or collaborated in at least two fully produced projects in Los Angeles. Sherwood awardees demonstrate leadership qualities, push existing boundaries and are dedicated to improving the future of their respective artistic fields. Artists are not limited by title, role or genre, but they must have a relationship to contemporary performance rooted in theatre.
Center Theatre Group will also offer two information sessions to prospective applicants on Saturday, May 12 at 11 a.m. (must RSVP by Wednesday, May 9 at 6 p.m.) and Tuesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. (must RSVP by Friday, May 11 at 6 p.m.). To RSVP or to receive more information about the sessions, please email Sherwood@CTGLA.org. Both sessions will be held at The Music Center Annex building, 601 W. Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
